In this panel, we see Shiva and his bride Parvati aloft Nandi, the bull. The
wedding procession includes Vishnu, Brahma and the seven cosmic sages, the
Saptarishis. Parvati had performed austere penances to impress upon Shiva the
intensity of her love. And the entire cosmos rejoiced.
Some of the sages are
seen playing drums, blowing the conch etc. Vishnu and Brahma hold
their usual attributes. The entire painting speaks of joy and celebration
with Shiva and Parvati oblivious to the ongoing event, looking deep into
each other's eyes.
There is brightness of colour, associated with any folk art form. The artist
has placed the figures in a way that they are neither overlapping, nor too
distant. Each figure enjoys its own space. All of them, however, are seen in
profile with prominent features eschewing sharpness.
